I am continuing my study of the ‘fear of the Lord.’. . .
Priests that despise my name. . . We surely today have many supposed priests of God, which despise the Name of God. Priests who teach untruth. Priests embarrassed and ashamed of Yeshua. . . Jehovah Saves. . .
Priests who deny the power of His name. . .
Priests who deny that in the name of Jesus lies salvation. . . none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Jesus was and is. . .
Those who offer a changed Jesus. . . those who have twisted His doctrine into something which it is not, are offering a polluted and corrupted bread to the people. . .They are feeding their flocks with that which does not nourish. . . it pleases the ears. . . it may well fill the pews, but it is not that which gives spiritual health, and everlasting life. . .
The doctrine of Jesus is not easy. It is not popular. . . it is a doctrine of discipline and discipleship, of self sacrifice, of holiness, of righteousness, of forgiveness, of repentance, of humility and meekness. . .and love and grace and truth. . . It is a doctrine which forces us to make a decision to either love the world or to love Him. It is a doctrine which demands that we depart from our old ways, and be reborn as new creatures in His likeness. . .
The doctrine of Jesus is not a doctrine of easy believism. . .these priests who despise His name, are offering the blind for sacrifice. . .Upon the backs of people who cannot see, these unholy priests gather the wounded and sick unto themselves and rather than leading their flocks into healing and restoration they take them to the altar maimed and marred.
Such are unacceptable sacrifices on God’s altar. . .
Present your bodies a living sacrifice. . . HOLY. . . ACCEPTABLE UNTO GOD. . . We are not to go presenting ourselves to God with our dirt, and blemishes, and brokenness intact, but we are to be renewed, transformed, reborn. . . not remaining as we were in the miry clay, but washed and cleansed of our sins by the blood of Jesus.
How abhorrent this doctrine is to our unholy modern priests, who despise His name. . .
Does God despise the blemished? Does God hate the disabled? Is God prejudiced against the physically maimed and deformed. . . the handicapped? The modern priests of unholiness, use this passage as evidence of the supposed unrighteousness of God. . ., but God says clearly here that the broken and the maimed may eat the bread of God. . ., He does not deny them the nourishment which their broken bodies require. . . but they may not come behind the vail or unto the altar in a broken and maimed state. The Old Testament uses the physical to point to the spiritual. . .In the Old Testament there was not yet a breach in the vail. . . the vail was yet intact. . . there was no rebirth available to man.
The physically marred and broken of the Old Testament, are those broken by and in the bondage of sin of the New Testament. You may not approach the altar, or go behind the vail with filth and blemishes upon you. . .
This is the consistent doctrine of God. . .
Seek God. . .
Seek His holiness
Seek His righteousness. . .
Do not allow yourself to be led astray by priests who despise His name. . .
I love you my God. . .
I love you my Lord. . .
